Men’s Basketball Team Has Three-Game Win Streak Snapped by Unbeaten Foe

NJCAA stamped basketball

The Genesee Community College men's basketball team was on the verge of giving visiting Herkimer its first loss of the season after heading into the intermission with a five-point lead, but the Generals produced 51 second-half points to defeat the Cougars 86-74.

Brian Fobbs led all Cougars in points and rebounds with 34 and 13, respectively, in recording yet another double-double.

Two other Cougars hit double-digit points with Rahmel Thompson scoring 14 and Brandon Peters adding 10. Peters also had a team-high six assists, while Thompson and Tyrese Cherry each registered five boards.

The difference in the game may have come from three-point land where the Generals sank five more threes than the Cougars.

Genesee now prepares to return to conference play with a Jan. 24 game at Niagara County Community College set for a 7:30 p.m. start.
